    I love your dress, but I think that elainemay could sue you. You shouldn’t sell product that is not your pattern.

      More a case of making one dress for a client, based on a pattern they like, exactly as I do all the time for clients using commercial patterns. No problem, as she isn’t making a whole factory load of them to sell.
